Main Focus of Research 

In my research I focus on motivated social cognition, i.a. on mechanisms of information processing which are influenced by motivational aspects and which shape human behavior in social interactions. Using a Model of Social interaction we try to explain reactions of threats, as well as processes of social influence and the initiation of change.

Applied perspectives of this research lie in the design of functional interactions as well as the avoidance of dysfunctional interactions and the analysis of different consulting approaches (e.g. coaching, mentoring, supervision, mediation).

An overview of the current research of my department can be found here.
